We shall be having the IRI Moving Convention this year - ONE week long. Route: BCT -> ADI -> JP -> NDLS -> BSB -> HWH -> MAS -> SBC. Dates: July 9 to July 17 Jul 9: BCT -> ADI Jul 10: ADI -> JP Jul 11: JP -> NDLS Jul 12: NDLS -> BSB Jul 13: BSB->HWH Jul 14: HWH->MAS Jul 16: MAS->SBC BSB->HWH and HWH->MAS are already fixed. Other train schedules will be announced shortly. . 1. A few of us will be travelling/RFing the entire distance, and writing our Trip Diary. En route, it is hoped that other members congregate for joint Rail Fanning sessions and use this opportunity to socialize with each other, either at the stations or for short train rides along the way. ALL IRI Members are invited to participate. . 2. We shall dedicate a complete, separate section/Forum of the site for the weeklong "festival". Myself and anyone else who is part of this Convention will write our travelogue/describe our experiences, who we meet, what we do - either IRI members or other travelling passengers. Maybe we'll also do "interviews" of other travelling people (if they consent), how they use trains, etc. All the RF Fun we are having will be logged in our Convention tab, so that people who are comfortably sitting at home are able to take part in the joy of travelling. . 3. We shall have a separate "Registration" for this event. NO fees, commitments or any other payment is required. ONLY, members will be expressing interest in meeting the "IRI Express" at their specified nearest station. If you would like to travel with us, then you will have to do your OWN ticketing and reservations. Registration is required so that other members know who they can EXPECT to meet at the spots. . 4. At BCT, ADI, JP, NDLS, BSB, HWH, MAS and SBC, IF we have critical mass (more than 20 Registrations at that city), IRI will host a banquet lunch/dinner at that city, so that all of us can sit together, enjoy good food and have some good old-fashioned RF talk for a couple of hours. . We have about 3 months left for the Convention - so there is adequate time for discussion/planning/deciding. There are no deadlines for you to make up your mind, but you have to do your own ticket bookings. More details will be available shortly. . TL;DR. 1. One week long Moving RF Convention. 2. Full section of the site devoted to the Convention. 3. No Fees. No commitments. No deadlines. Make up your mind whenever you want - even at the last minute. Members make their OWN bookings/travel arrangements to participate and socialize with each other. 4. Banquet/lunch hosted by IRI if we have critical mass (more than 20 attendees) at the different cities. . Thanks.

This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing.
However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...
This is an advance notice of an upcoming change:
1. We shall be removing the Login/Forum section from the RailCal app as it is cumbersome, buggy and lacking in features.

The following changes are being made:
1. To restore the fun back to PNR Predictions, PNR Predictions will NOT be hidden anymore. PNR Predictions by members can be seen by ALL, before and after Charting. New members often look towards our expert predictors for hints, and we are reinstanting that.
2. To better...
While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse".
This is an advance notice that some of the...
IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
This is a clarification to all members regarding our Forum Guidelines and the FM Group. SWs are issued for very clear cases of abuse and misbehaviour by a member.
At this time, we have had many members against whom SW is issued claim that:
